KL8601 | Communication module for TeSys model U

The KL8601 communication module is plugged into the TeSys Model U motor starter. It connects the starter with the KL8610 adapter terminal and further motor starters with communication module. The KL8610 adapter terminal provides the connection with the Bus Terminal system. The control and status information of the motor starter evaluation unit are transferred to the Bus Terminal system via the KL8601 communication module. The KL8601 communicates with the higher-level automation device via the Bus Coupler. All TeSys system control devices are supported (standard, expanded and multi-functional).
